Central California

Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is excited to be expanding in the Central California region, thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente. Central Valley is home to 137 ICCC alumni from Sacramento and Stockton, and since their participation they have averaged 25% growth in revenue, created 180 jobs, and raised $11M in capital.

In light of the current situation, we have decided to offer the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Opening Seminar as a virtual two-day seminar series. There will be two options for Central California-based businesses to participate:

  • Option 1: Tuesday, September 1st & Thursday, September 3rd
  • Option 2: Tuesday, October 27th & Thursday, October 29th

Please note that we are only accepting applications for the Central California Option 2 cohort.

For questions regarding the 2020 Central California cohort, reach out directly to Anna Marie Cruz, Western Regional Manager, at (562) 631-7937 or amcruz@icic.org.
